My favorite albums of 2006

First, seeing as I had much less in the way of disposible income this year, I was not able to buy all the albums I was interested in. Second, beyond that, no one is ever able to listen to every worthwhile album that comes out in any year. This is just a list of the albums I’d most recommend from this year.

10. Voxtrot – Mothers, Sisters, Daughters, & Wives EP / Raised By Wolves EP / Your Biggest Fan single (add the three together, and it forms one fantastic album)
9. Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Show Your Bones
8. Neko Case – Fox Confessor Brings The Flood
7. CSS – Cansei De Ser Sexy
6. Various – The World Is Gone
5. The Pipettes – We Are The Pipettes
4. LCD Soundsystem – 45:33 (iTunes only)
3. Lily Allen – Alright, Still
2. Belle And Sebastian – The Life Pursuit
1. The Knife – Silent Shout

Honourable Mention: The DFA Remixes Chapters 1 & 2 (I can’t choose between them, so they’re not in the top 10)
Best Argument For Sampling As Art: Girl Talk – Night Ripper
Disappointing Second Albums: Kasabian – Empire, Scissor Sisters – Ta-dah!, The Rapture – Pieces Of People We Love
How To Be Consistant: The Fiery Furnaces – Bitter Tea, The Divine Comedy – Victory For The Comic Muse
Love It Or Hate It Single I Love: Gwen Stefani – Wind It Up
Worst Song Ever: Hinder – Lips Of An Angel
(Very) Guilty Pleasure: She Wants Revenge
